Highest ERA's Among Mets Pitchers

There have been 428 men who have pitched for the Mets in their history (including Todd Zeile).  Only 33 have thrown at least 500 innings to qualify for this stat.

So who has the worst ERA's among Mets pitchers who have thrown at least 500 innings?  

1)  Oliver Perez - 4.71
2)  Mike Pelfrey - 4.37
3)  Al Jackson - 4.26
4)  John Maine - 4.17
5)  Dave Mlicki - 4.15

You may think these numbers may have been higher, but if you were getting shelled at higher numbers - you wouldn't last long enough in the rotation to get to 500 innings.

But either way you slice it, Ollie P sucked. 

Pitchers that have had at least 250 innings with the Mets that have ERA's that matched or exceeded Mlicki's 4.15

Nino Espinosa - 4.15 in 457.1 innings
Aaron Heilman - 4.24 in 450.1
Tracey Stallard - 4.16 in 380.1
Jay Hook - 5.22 in 376
Glendon Rusch - 4.30 in 370.2
Mike Scott - 4.64 in 364.2
Jason Isringhausen - 4.57 in 356.1
Pete Schourek - 4.65 in 350.2
Masato Yoshii - 4.17 in 345.2
Pete Harnisch - 4.33 in 330.1
Mike Torres - 4.47 in 260

So if  you want to look at it that way, the worst pitcher in Met's history is appropriately named Jay Hook of the 15-34 Hook's.
